October Cross Canada Blog Hop - Base and Bling

Welcome to our October Blog Hop featuring the NEW Base and Bling line. You will see creations from our participants that will include necklaces, rings, bracelets, headbands and so much more.  To purchase any of the items seen in our blog hop today, contact your local consultant to place an order.
We hope that you will take the time to leave comments on our posts, as we love to get feedback from our viewers....whether it was something that you really liked or some new technique that was used that you would like to learn how to do....by leaving us comments, we get to hear what you like, and what you want to see. Thank you… now on to our hop! 

If you have just hopped onto my blog, then you've found the first stop on our Cross Canada Hop.

For my project I made the headband (Z1878).  I used the Juniper Vine pattern from the Sparkle & Shine Textiles (Z1884) and the Lagoon Houndstooh Washi Tape (Z1850).  I wrapped the Washi Tape around the headband to cover the band itself.  Then cutting a piece of textile about 2"x 14" I folded the cut edges in and adhered it to a large Adhesive dot (Z1903).  Then beginning to twist the fabric tightly, I wound it into a rosette.  Once I had covered the adhesive dot, I then peeled it off the carrier sheet, and adhered it to a second adhesive dot and placed it on the metal plate on the headband.  You can see how to make the rosette here in this video for the Base and Bling Necklace Kit.

Your next stop on the Cross Canada Hop is Krista of " Simply Creating Together.  If you get lost along the way, you can head back here, as I have provided a full list of our hoppers.
Here is the complete Blog Hop List:
